Keenum, is this another case of Chris Myers and KJax?
FOR those who don't know me, I was the guy who defended those two during off-seasons, after their "seemingly" disastrous campaigns.
While doing so, I spent a lot of times breaking down several "perceived" terrible plays by the defendants.
Some claimed that I made them pro - bowlers while the usual thinking was that they stink.
That, by itself, is a "small" victory for the defendants, whether in the court of law or common "justice".
Just to make the jury explore the evidences that encompass the whole case rather than just zeroing in one target is always a good step. The final judgment is always in the hand of the jury.
Unfortunately, I don't have much time this year.
The regulars here can tell by my abscence.
They also know that I believe in Football as a team sport; it is won most often with a cohesive unit (Coaching, offense, defense, ST, and fans.)
All that said, I'd like to begin the "investigation" with Tom Brady in his second year with the Patriots.
Study his numbers from every aspect and they are really close to Keenum's
Then you look at each smaller unit.
Advantage Brady, by how much? It's hard to quantify; my thinking is the running game helped Brady more.
But when it comes to defense, I hate to say it, there was no contest.
Brady had nearly a ten point advantage.
And then there's ST.
I like Keenum a lot because he has it upstairs, but he's always limited in statue.
From day one, I've stressed that he needs to begin by observing Drew Brees.
Right now I think he plays more like a backup .
